COURT: MANNING DIDN’T AID ENEMY
Bradley Manning Faces Sentencing Hearing on Wednesday
US Army Pfc Bradley Manning, 25, was acquitted on Tuesday of aiding the enemy for giving secrets to WikiLeaks. The judge did find Manning guilty on 19 other counts of theft and espionage. Manning faces 100+ Years.
Manning has not yet been sentenced. Aiding the enemy was the most serious charge and would have carried a potential life sentence. Manning released 700,000 secret government documents to WikiLeaks in 2010 after becoming disillusioned by US foreign policy.
